Thin Films
Thin films explains the phenomenon of seeing colors reflected from soap bubbles or a
film of oil on water. This color result from the constructive interference between light reflected
from two surfaces of a thin film.(see picture) The rays come

The goal of this lab is to demonstrate the wave nature of sound by measuring the
wavelength and frequency f of a sound and then show that the product of the this frequency and
wavelength is equal to the speed of t

a. to develop and verify Hooke's Law for springs - The amount that a spring stretches or
compresses is directly proportional to the magnitude of the applied force.
b. to demonstrate the Law of Energy Conservation
Double Slit Phenomenon
Thomas Youngs double slit experiment provides the evidence for the wave nature of
light and even allows us to measure the wavelengths for visible light. It also gives us the double
slit phenomenon.
A double slit is made up of two si
The Three main types of trigonometric functions are sine, cosine, and tangent ( sine/
cosine). Each one has a parent graph with an x-axis of radians and a y-axis of amplitude
measure. The parent graph of sine is y= sin or y=Asin(kx +c)+v. The cosines pare
